What the papers say – March 3

Budget speculation dominates the front pages of Sunday’s newspapers.

The Budget and the prospect of tax cuts take the spotlight on the front pages of several Sunday newspapers.

Chancellor Jeremy Hunt will deliver his budget on Wednesday and several papers look at the chances – and impact – of tax cuts.

The Sunday Times says Mr Hunt and Prime Minister Rishi Sunak are “battling to find the money” for a 2p cut in personal taxes.

That plan comes under fire in The Observer, which carries a warning from two former Treasury aides that cuts will “cost us all dear” as they call for measures to spur investment and growth.

But the Sunday Express tells the Government it risks losing the support of pensioners if there is no cut in income tax.

The Sunday Telegraph carries an interview with Mr Hunt in which he outlines a plan for a “war on immoral Whitehall waste” with a crackdown on public sector bureaucracy.

The Duke of York features on the front of the Sunday Mirror, which says he faces fresh questions about his support for paedophile Jeffrey Epstein with the release of more court papers.

The Independent covers concerns about politicians’ security as it reveals a dossier from a private intelligence firm which it says contains false allegations about a former Conservative MP.

The mother of a woman missing for three years in the Virgin Islands features on the front of Sunday People, saying she wants justice for her daughter.

And the Daily Star Sunday carries the tale of a mayonnaise addict who gets through three bottles a week.
